Mayan Warrior Queen UnearthedIf you are familiar with the great warrior queens of history, then you are probably thinking of Boudicca of the Iceni, Zenobia of Syria, or Tomyris of the Scythians. Sadly, the New World civilizations are lesser-known to most people.Mayan Warrior Queen Unearthed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am a total nerd for pre-Columbian civilization, and that's why I totally squee'd when I spotted this news article today about the discovery of the tomb of the ancient Mayan warrior queen, known as Lady K'abel.
Lady K'abel was queen of the city-state of El-Peru-Waka', from 672-692 AD. The Mayan civilization was not a singular kingdom, but a collection of independent city states. Lady K'abel was married to the king K'inich Balaam, and apparently held the title of military governor.
From Discovery.com News:
"Archaeologists in Guatemala say they have discovered the 7th-century tomb of Lady K'abel, one of the greatest queens of classic Maya civilization.
The most powerful person in Waka' during her life

Hand crafted toysChildren's Day was just yesterday here in Mexico (April 30th), but I'm still dreaming about being a kid again and being crazy over toys. I looked around and found some amazing hand crafted toys or toy related crafts, and I felt very inspired by them. I hope this will inspire your inner child too!Hand crafted toys1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Random fact: I actually own a lot more toys now than I did back when I was a kid except that I now call them collectibles. Fave this article if you also do!

Disability is Only Another Kind of ABILITYAccording to any dictionary, the definition of the word "disability" is composed of words that revolve around the idea of not being able to do anything. And when applied to a human being, it is often meant to imply a human who cannot do anything.Disability is Only Another Kind of ABILITY3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know about you, but I have never met, seen, or heard of a human who cannot do anything. Society places such inferences upon people who are unemployed; "They're doing nothing with their life." People who like to play video games; "They sit around and to nothing." And people with medical conditions; "They can't stand up or run a marathon, so they must be doing nothing." Last time I checked, these were all forms of "doing something," whether it means enjoying gaming or using a wheelchair to get around. No one does nothing.
In the case of disability, society often views it as a permanent state. And yes, the condition (as in my case, CMT) may be p

SJW (Social Justice Warrior) and how to crush themOne of the clear signs of a ProgSheep (aka “Zero sum game kind of Leftist”) being pushed into a corner, knowing that it’s at the end of its rope, is that its mental faculties will start to melt down completely and it will start to lash out in ever more angry and insane ways.SJW (Social Justice Warrior) and how to crush them9 months ago in Personal More Like This
A perfect example would be the Social Justice Warrior variant of the ProgSheepspecies and their antics as of late.
Beset by an overwhelming (and sadly, often unjustified) sense of lack of worth, they’ve devoted their lives to making sure that nobody else is enjoying themselves either.
Like any other ProgSheep subculture, they simply cannot stand anybody doing something they enjoy, because their happiness is a constant reminder of how utterly bereft of joy their own lives are, just as they cannot bear the thought of anybody being successful as that serves as a painful reminder of just how spectacularly they have failed to achieve anything of value themselves.
Thus they constantly strive

Also, I will thank each of the kindly folk who wished me a Happy Birthday personally, It's just takin' me awhile. I help a bud with his club and have to do the work I promised tonight, but tomorrow both the thanks and my going through your galleries will continue.
And since this journal will only run through Sunday (which means the journal graphic will have a shorter run) I'll put up something creative by Joe-Maccer since he's had enough stuff featured in my journal to not feel cheated by the short feature - go ahead, say "Ooooo!"

DifferencesDisabilities do not make people less beautiful. They are just one other characteristic that makes them unique. In a way, disabilities are like new abilities, such as being able to see the world from a different perspective and learning how to do everyday things in a new way. Our differences are what make us special and make us beautiful. And no matter what your differences might be, you must always keep this in mind.Differences4 years ago in Personal More Like This

And Back To Homophobes...http://comments.deviantart.com/1/532730803/3830132468And Back To Homophobes...3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Okay, lemme stop you right there, as a straight man who knows the science behind homosexuality.
The reason homosexuality was removed from the ranks of mental disorders is because science, which is based on disproving incorrect ideas, has falsified the claim that homosexuality is a mental disorder; In fact, there is even a mechanism by which someone can be born a homosexual.
When a woman has a child, their body thinks that the embryo/fetus is actually a harmful growth and produces antigens. With the first children, these aren't very potent, and these antigens do not strongly affect the horomones the child produces after birth; Thus, the first child does not have a high chance of being born a homosexual. However, with successive children, the antigens become progessively stronger, thus increasing the chance that later children will be born homosexuals.
Further, horomones and the immune responses of a woman during. pregnancy have
What Is A Social Justice Warrior (SJW)?(My thoughts on the matter shall be in bold / parens)What Is A Social Justice Warrior (SJW)?6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Social justice warriors believe in an extreme left-wing ideology that combines feminism, progressivism, and political correctness into a totalitarian system that attempts to censor speech and promote fringe lifestyles while actively discriminating against men, particularly white men. They are the internet activist arm of Western progressivism that acts as a vigilante group to ensure compliance and homogeny of far left thought.
The true definition of SJW is up for debate, but most generally it has become a catch-all term that describes feminists and liberals who actively try to solve the perceived social injustices of modern society by organizing in online communities to disseminate propaganda, censor speech, and punish individuals by getting them terminated from their employment. They have also been successful at positioning themselves in the upper echelons of universities, media organizations, and tech companies.

Day To You April 22 Is A Day Of Action
Earth Day as we know it began 45 years ago today.
Despite being a completely new holiday, Wednesday, April 22, 1970 saw crowds of millions turn out for peaceful demonstrations in support of environmental reform in the United States.
The primary reason for choosing the April 22 date was that it would be a convenient day for the schedules of college students. It fell between spring break and finals, and didn’t overlap with ma

Clive Barker Wants To Read Your Writing
Artwork by CliveBarker
You know CliveBarker as the master of horror fiction and young adult fantasy. But did you know he is also an acclaimed fine artist with paintings hanging in several galleries and art institutions?
For Halloween this year, Clive is going to take a break from writing stories for you—and read your original stories based on some of the artwork he's created.
As inspiration for your tale of horror or mystery or special wonder, Clive is providing the prompts of his own paintings that are to be your starting points.
What’s the story behind the painting?
Clive himself will judge the submitted imaginings and decide which work of prose best captures the untold
You Are StrongSometimes it takes a setback in life to show you just how strong you are. We learn to prevail in ways we never thought possible and teach ourselves how to do the same things in a whole new way. We learn to never take the little things for granted and to be thankful for each and every moment we are given.You Are Strong4 years ago in Personal More Like This
